What type of wallet do you prefer, hip pocket or back pocket. Do you want to palm cards?

Well I have several CTW effects:

1. Real Mans Wallet - This is my personal favorite but you do need to learn to palm

2. Hip Pocket Mullica - This is my Favorite no palm CTW I would say this is my favorite to use but I usually either cop or palm the card anyhow and I prefer it to look like a real wallet.

3. Balducci wallet - It does the job but I dislike using this for a few reasons one being that where you load can be flashed easily if not careful.

4. Mirage Wallet - I absolutely love this wallet the Gimmick is Genious but I would never use this as a real wallet.

Again, this still depends on what you like in a wallet, if you cant palm then I would try to learn but I would use the Mullica Wallet, Also which pocket will be carrying it, if its a pocket where you will not crush the gimmick like a jacket pocket then I like the Mirage.

Overall for me the Real mans wallet is the most used because it fits in my back pocket, the quality is great and the loading is simple (Must Palm though) I hope this helped :)

Hands down, my favorite is the Jerry O'connell Plus Wallet. It's expensive, but well worth it for a working pro. If I'm wearing a coat, it's the only one I'll ever use. He has some less expensive Hip Pocket-style wallets that you may want to look into also. Black's Magic is also about to release a hip pocket wallet that you may want to look into.

It gets no where near the reaction as openly and extremely cleanly pulling the card out of the wallet. The DB gives them a chance to say that you switched it.

If you like the Real Mans wallet or the Hip Pocket Mullica, ( Both are my designs) then you will like something new I have coming out. I wont give you any details yet, but this will be something very new in card to wallets. It will be called The Modifier. If you have never been happy with the look of a billfold before, I can pretty much guarantee that you will now. Keep your eyes open.

both of those are my favorite, I prefer the size and look of the real mans wallet but I like loading the mullica much better. I have been using the real mans wallet lately but with deep pockets loading is rough :(

I am on the hunt for the best CTW first one I bought was the Hip Pocket Mullica love it just don't really use it much because of the size of the wallet. So I looked around for a smaller wallet I bought the triple threat wallet, very nice design works pretty well just not my style for everyday use great peek wallet thou. I placed a order for a Real Mans Wallet and also the new blacks magic CTW *grey* looking forward in testing these out I really hope I can find a wallet I enjoy using.

If you really want to explore the CTW possibilites .... pick up the DVD on Worlds Greatest Magic, Card to Wallet series. Penguin has it at the best price and you can see all the different variations of the trick. My favorite is using it in conjunction with the Chicago Opener card trick and I use an old Himbler type I pull from my jacket pocket ...... Blows people away. This was how I first saw the trick done almost 35 years ago on my first visit to the Magic Castle when I was first getting into magic. The effect of having a signed card in a sealed envelope pulled from a zipper compartment still astonishes me .....
